    There's a difference in chute angle between the Woodmaxx and the Wallenstein chippers. Woodmaxx style chippers have a horizontal feed chute whereas the Wallensteins are angled down, which assists with feeding. The Woodmaxx hyd. fed chipper wasn't that much more than manual and it was still significantly less expensive than Wallenstein. Now that is a better decision point for a "hobby farmer" occasional user then with or without hydraulic feed.

    I'm also a BX62 owner. No hydrofeed on mine either, and I definitely don't think I need one. The Wallenstein pulls the limbs in really well on its own.

    The simplicity and sheer brute-ness of the Wallenstein design is what endeared me to them.

    Check WoodwardCrossings.con (I think - just Google them) for their price. Their prices and service is top notch.

    Very true. My BX62 grabs the tree/limbs and literally rips them out of my hand. If it were any more aggressive I would have to stand back and launch the trees at the intake chute just to maintain safe clearance from being drug in also.

    For those of you with the Wallensteins -

    Are they all direct drive?
    Do you shear many bolts?
    Do any of you use PTO shafts with a clutch?

    It seems most of the "chinese" chippers use belts.

    There have been several times my Jinma would "choke" on a big limb and I had to quickly disengage the chipper while the belts slipped a bit.

    I think the biggest difference is its price.

    I've read of too much problems with your Copycat chippers to know better Jack. You learn cheaply.

    It depends on what is meant by "chipping" for sure.

    With 85 HP you could chip some serious sized wood, if as mentioned, you have a plan for getting the tree to/into the chipper. Big trees would call for hydraulic feed.

    I've never missed not having hydraulic feed on my BX62, but I don't chip large trees. Mostly 3" and smaller. I may cut a tall sapling in half, but that is so I can swing it into position without getting hung up in the surrounding trees. I would be doing that even if I had a hydraulic feed.
